What PSHE teachers think about our support and Empower Hour…

“I couldn’t believe just how much ground we managed to cover. I left with a clear plan of next steps and the reassurances I needed as a new PSHE Subject Lead to work through things successively. I was feeling overwhelmed, but having Angela from Chameleon PDE available to chat through my ideas gave me the clarity and confidence to know I was on the right track.”
Ashley Rennison (Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy, Derbyshire)
“I first became aware of Chameleon PDE last year when we were struggling to make sure students mental health needs were addressed during the pandemic. The support from Chameleon made my life as Subject Lead more straightforward and resulted in PSHE programme developments which gained excellent feedback from students, teachers and parents alike.”
Emiline Moins (St John Fisher Catholic High School, Cambridgeshire)

Personal, Social, Health, Education (PSHE) is an important part of every pupil’s education. It is an area of the school curriculum that has often been overlooked and given a low priority. However, with Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) for secondary schools and Relationships and Health Education (RSE) for primary schools having become statutory in all state schools in England from September 2020, PSHE can no longer be left to chance or fitted in when there is nothing ‘more important’ to do.
